Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router
I have a linskys wireless network and I want to password protect it but don't know how. I live on a busy street and don't want people stopping in front of my home to log on. I got everything working well and even think I had a chance during setup to protect it but didn't at that time, but now I can't get back to that point where I can. I thought I had it but it said my code must be 40 or 104bit or something like that. I don't know what that means. Sorry for this being a fairly stupid question but any help is appreciated.
It's not really a stupid question, especially if you were not paying attention in computer class, or didn't take one :-)
The numbers are 64 and 128 bit and those equal 10 or 20 HEXADECIMAL digits. Those count from 0 to 9 and A to F for zero-to-15. In my cul-de-sac (French for dead end street) I just use 64 bit with 1011121314 as the WEP key. You could get cute and spell out someting like 123456FACE, just because it says something, but notice there are 10 legal HEX characters in a 64 bit word.
This is not absolute perfect security, btw but it keeps the casual computer user out of your system.

Cain and Abel is a password recovery tool that enables network administrators to test network security, or home users to recover a variety of stored network passwords. The program reports sniffing and recovery of most popular protocols, including FTP, SMTP, POP3, HTTP, mySQL, ICQ, Telnet and others.
It can also recover passwords hidden behind asterisk (***), stored in VNC profiles, SQL Server Enterprise Manager, Remote Desktop connections and wireless connections.
Other features include LSA Secrets Dumper, Protected Storage password revealer, network enumeration, VoIP filtering and more. Probably one of the most complete network password recovery/security tools you can find.
Cain and Abel is intended for network administrators or advanced users.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Most anti-virus programs will warn you of a password cracking or hacking tool when you install this software! If you don't understand why this is, you should not download this software.
Hope this helps you
